2. New York City

Think about ice skating to Bing Crosby singing "White Christmas" at the base of Rockefeller Center...This one only happens in the Big Apple. Go and take a ferry across to Ellis Island and marvel at the Statue of Liberty or walk the solemn halls of the New York City Public Library. With more than 1,000 different restaurants, you can get lost in the incredible holiday cuisine that New York City has to offer. Don't forget to take a horse-drawn carriage through Central Park in the wee hours of the morning.
